Abstract

Complex 3D microparticles could play an important role in several bioengineering technologies. However, the shape of particles that can currently be fabricated is restricted to certain types, like spheres, ellipsoids, and extrusions of 2D patterns. The design process for current technologies is also complicated for shapes other than 2D patterns. Here we demonstrate a fabrication method with software-enabled design to generate microparticles consisting of extrusions of two separately designed shapes, through (i) engineering the flow stream inside microchannels and (ii) exposing through arbitrary optical masks. We demonstrate agreement between fabricated particles and the software designs and an improved production rate.
